(A.) ― -b5- لَهَانَسَبَتْنَا فَا@نْتَسَبْنَا [She asked us to tell her our lineage; so we mentioned our lineage to her]. (IAar, from a trad.) ― -b6- نَسَبَهُ الى فُلَانٍ He asserted him to be related to such a one: and he referred his lineage, or origin, to such a one. ― -b7- He referred the origin or derivation of his name to such a one. ― -b8- He attributed, or ascribed, it to such a one.

(Z.) This phrase and نَسَبَ الرَّجُلَ both signify description; the latter signifying “ he described the man with relation to his father, or his city or country, or the like; ” and the former phrase, he described the woman as characterized by beauty and youth and love or affection &c. (IDrst.) نَسِيبٌ is also employed to signify the describing of the places where the objects of love have taken up their abode in the season of the رَبِيع and at other times, and the lover's longing to meet them and be united with them, and what else is comprised in the signification of the words تَشْبِيبٌ and غَزَلٌ.

Hence the proverb, القَرِيبُ مَنْ تَقَرَّبَ لَا مَنْ تَنَسَّبَ: (S, K:) i. e. He is [indeed] an ally who allies himself by affection and friendship: not he who asserts himself to be a kinsman. (TA.) 6 تناسبوا ذ (tropical:) They were mutually, or reciprocally, related; resembled one another; were similar, conformable, analogous, correspondent, or suitable, one to another; befitted one another. (TA.)

One says to a man, in asking him respecting his relationship, &c., إِِسْتَنْسِبْ لَنَا أَىْ إِِنْتَسِبْ لَنَا حَتَّى نَعْرِفَكَ [Mention thy relationship, or lineage, to us, that we may know thee]. (AZ.) Q. Q. 1 نَيْسَبَ بَيْنَهُمَا ذ , inf. n. نَيْسَبَةٌ, He went to and fro between them two with malicious and mischievous misrepresentations, calumnies, or slanders, &c. (L, K.) نَسْبٌ ذ : see نَسَبٌ. نَسَبٌ ذ and ↓ نِسْبَهٌ and ↓ نُسْيَةٌ (S, K) Relationship; relation; kindred; consanguinity; [family; race; lineage; parentage; pedigree; genealogy; origin; reputed relationship or lineage or origin;] (K;) with respect to father and mother; (ISk;) or with respect to fathers only: (K:) pl. of the first, أَنْسَابٌ; (S;) of the ↓ second, نِسَبٌ; and of the ↓ third, نُسَبٌ. (Msb.) The first, by poetical license, is contracted into ↓ نَسْبٌ . (T.) [You say,] بَيْنَهُمَا نَسَبٌ Between them is relationship; said whether they may lawfully marry one another, or not. (Msb.) See نَسِيبٌ. نِسْبَةٌ ذ (tropical:) Relation; proportion; comparison; with respect to quantity, or measure, and the like.

A more general name of this kind should precede a more particular one: thus you say القُرَشِىُّ الهَاشِمِىُّ: and it is better that a name of relation to a tribe should precede one of relation to a town or the like: thus you say القُرَشِىُّ المَكِّىُّ. It is said that the Arabs originally called themselves by such names only in relation to tribes; and that, when they took up their abodes in cultivated lands and in cities, they borrowed names of relation to towns and the like from the Persians and Copts.

(TA.) ― -b2- نَسِيبٌ (S, K) and ↓ مَنْسُوبٌ (K) One related; a relation; a kinsman. (S, K, TA.) You say فُلَانٌ نَسِيبِى [Such a one is my relation]: and هُمْ أَنْسِبَائِى [They are my relations]. (TA.) ↓ نَسَبٌ , also, is used for ذُو نَسَبٍ [A relation, or kinsman]; and means a male, or female, relation; (Jel, xxv. 56;) and for ذَوُو نَسَبٍ [relations, or kinsmen]. (Bd, ibid.) [See also صِهْرٌ.] ― -b3- نَسِيبٌ and ↓ مَنْسُوبٌ A man of rank, or quality, or the like, and of family, or lineage. (TA.) ― -b4- ↓ نَسِيبٌ نَاسبٌ [An elegant amatory mentioning of a woman, or of women, in the beginning of a poem] is a phrase like شَعْرٌ شَاعِرٌ. (K.) See أَنْسَبُ. نَسَّابٌ ذ (K) and ↓ نَسَّابَةٌ (S, K.) Skilful in genealogy: (K:) [or rather, the former signifies very skilful in genealogies; or a great genealogist:] the latter, possessing the utmost knowledge in genealogies; or a most skilful genealogist: [this being of a doubly intensive form;] the ة being annexed to render the epithet one of excessive praise: (S:) pl. of the former نَسَّابُونَ, and of the latter نَسَّابَاتٌ: (TA:) you say عِنْدِى ثَلَاثَةُ نسّاباتٍ, meaning ثلاثة رِجَالٍ نسّاباتٍ. (S.) نَسَّابَةٌ ذ : see نَسَّابٌ. نَاسِبٌ ذ : see نَسِيبٌ. نَيْسَبٌ ذ A straight, or direct, and conspicuous, or open, road, or way: (K:) or narrow road, or way: (TA:) as also ↓ نَيْسَبَانٌ : (K:) some say نَيْسَمٌ, which is a dial. form: (TA:) or نيسب signifies the traces of a road, or way. (K.) ― -b2- Also نَيْسَبٌ Ants that appear like a road; (S;) ants following one another uninterruptedly. (K.) Dukeyn Ibn-Rejà says, “ عَيْنًا تَرَى النَّاسَ إِِلَيْهَا نَيْسَبَا
” [A source to which thou seest the people (repairing like) ants proceeding in uninterrupted succession]. (S.) ― -b3- Also, the track of ants, (ISd, K,) and of a serpent, and of wild asses going to their watering-places. (TA.) نَيْسَبَانٌ ذ : see نَيْسَبٌ. هٰذَا الشِّعْرُ أَنْسَبُ ذ This poetry is more, or most. elegant in what is termed نَسِيب. see 2: (K:) as though they had said نَسِيبٌ نَاسِبٌ, like شِعْرٌ شَاعِرٌ, to give intensiveness to the signification, and thence formed the word أَنْسَبُ.
